Max Rameau is the founder of the Miami-based organization Take Back the Land. In 2006, the organization seized control of a vacant and built a shantytown called Umoja Village. In 2007, when Miami had (and still has) the second highest foreclosure rate in the country, Max and Take Back the Land began a campaign of taking over bank-owned foreclosed homes and moving homeless families into them. Take Back the Land and Max Rameau have been featured in countless stories including the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Mother Jones Magazine, CNN, Good Morning America, ABC World News Tonight, NBC Nightly News, Fox News and PBS' NOW program. And in Michael Moore’s newest film Capitalism: A Love Story. Take Back the Land specifically addresses issues of housing, race, land and self-determination
